? WHAT IS #MarchOfTheFauns?
For the month of March 2018 I am creating one of a kind faun and satyr drawings all month long! Its called #MarchOfTheFauns , a monthly themed challenge to celebrate and engage with the online fantasy art community. Specifically, I explored and expanded the lore of fauns within my own IP, a magical world called "#Terratoff"
Along the shores of Terratoff, one can find many thriving nautical villages and markets governed by the "seaside fauns". The seaside fauns have adapted to life by the ocean in ways that make them uniquely distinct from their forest dwelling cousins.
They cultivate and trade the water's harvest including fish, kelp, and minerals found only below the waves. They work together with neighboring (and usually reclusive) Sea Wyverns to collect and distribute these valuable resources. Although Sea Wyverns prefer solitude, the seaside fauns share their love for the water and open air, so the two species cooperate well when needed.
Seaside fauns prefer to have smaller antlers to avoid getting tangled in seaweed while swimming and diving. They will even file their antlers down if they get too long. Nautically embellished neck collars that resemble man-made diving helmets are a common trend, paired with crowns and shawls of kelp or pearls.
Although their lives are filled with fresh sunshine and the crisp ocean air, the seaside fauns live under a foreboding shadow. The sea is all that separates the Winnow (pure) creatures of
Terratoff from the Rotten army lurking in the "Dark Lands". Should their forces traverse across the waters once more, the seaside villages are the first line of defense.
